Domain Details

You can review and edit basic information about your domain on the Details tab, including:

  1. Domain Name, Userspace (not editable), Domain ID (not editable), and External ID. Save the any edits you've made.
  1. The Active student summary card uses a pie chart to show how many students are failing, at risk, and succeeding, and the correlating percentages. You can also download enrollment and student information.
  2. The Domain teacher summary lists all teachers in the domain. You can click each name to review their Teacher Dashboard information (which appears in your Admin > Users tool). The colored circles show:
    • Overall Teacher responsiveness in grading activities for each course:
      • Green means you have graded all submitted, gradable items within 2 days or less.
      • Yellow means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 3 or more days ungraded.
      • Red means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 6 or more days ungraded.
    • Aggregated Student performance for each course:
      • Green means that, in aggregate, your students are performing above 10% of the minimum grade for the course.
      • Yellow means that, in aggregate, your students have failed in 1 of their last five submissions or they are within 10% of failing the course.
      • Red means that, in aggregate, your students have failed 2 of their last five submissions or they are failing the course.
    • Overall Student pace for each course:
      • Green means that, in aggregate, your students are submitting all gradable items on time or that less than 10% are past due.
      • Yellow means that, in aggregate, your students have 10% or more of gradable items past due.
      • Red means that, in aggregate, your students have 30% or more of gradable items past due.

Use the vertical menu in the Domain toolbar to:  

  • Open and edit Domain settings.
  • Import enrollments and Import observers as tab-delimited or comma-separated values (.csv) files.
  • Move the domain.
  • Set assessment password to create a password that grants access to all password protected assessments in the domain. This password works in addition to each assessment's original password; it doesn't replace them. Domain-wide passwords are not inherited by subdomains.

Accessibility notes

Four inline help items appear within the Settings toolbar button that are not currently supported by screen readers:

  • In the Landing Content card: Buzz shows the content provided here to users of the selected applications after login. Learn more.
  • In the Learning Standards card: Provide a comma-separated list of national, state, and district standard sets for course importing. Available sets include CCSS, NGSS, and state standards as two letter codes. Learn more.
  • In the Authentication card next to the Allow users to create their own accounts option: You must provide a code (token) to end-users so that they can create their own accounts. Learn more.
  • In the Authentication card next to the Set password policy option: Complete these fields to define your password policy. The duration fields require ISO designators, such as P60D for 60 days or PT15M for 15 minutes. Learn more.

In my district, we have an online academy where students may either take their entire schedule of classes online, or take most of their schedule in person at their "home school" but take a course or two online. Likewise, most of the instructors of these courses are sometimes "adjunct" where they teach full-time at a brick and mortar school but teach a course or two online as an extra assignment, but we have a small handful of teachers who are full-time online teachers. User accounts for teachers and students who are full-time online reside in a Buzz domain just for the online school, while user accounts for teachers and students who are only part-time online reside in the Buzz domain that is connected to their "home" school ... but regardless of where the users are located, the online courses are all located in the online school's Buzz domain.

This online school has an administrator, and he would like to see all of the online teachers (regardless of which domain their user account is located in) listed under the Domain teacher summary part of his admin home page so he can track their work at a glance. Is that a possibility? Right now, the Domain teacher summary is listing some teachers who are not located in the online academy's domain but teach online courses that are located in that domain ... but when he clicks on their name, he gets the following error:

Unable to navigate
Code AccessDenied
Error ID 2312883105b9485ca357ba527392232c

What permissions on which domains do we need to grant him so this works ... or is that even possible?

Just to acknowledge one of your assumptions, yes, the online school administrator will see teachers in the "Domain teacher summary" as long as the courses they teach reside in the online school domain, regardless of where the teachers reside.

For them to be able to click on a teacher and view their details, they will need to have the Users > Read permission on the domain where the teachers reside.
